The efficient transfer of varying data across multiple systems, often globally, is a challenge faced by many retailers. Many are using complex spread sheets and complicated work-arounds to analyse data. This can be very time consuming, and often lead to data-inaccuracy. We have developed a cost effective solution to deliver operational advantages and reliability of data.

Ra-X is a “Cloud” solution providing customers with a low cost, and high dependency solution to a significant business operation.
